Fresh fish and hand-cut chips are a pretty perfect combination, and the brains behind Hello Please promise to deliver both in the best way possible with their new concept Ol’ School. The boutique fish and chippery sits under Mirvac’s Art House development on Hope Street, just around the corner from Fish Lane. Ol’ School serves up all of the best bits of nostalgic fish and chips but prepared with modern techniques and proper fish preparation, drawing on head chef Jesse Stevens’ training at now-closed three-hatted Pier in Rose Bay. Forget wasted minutes deliberating over cod or snapper – your choice of fish is the best quality and freshest available at the market that day, you just have to decide if you want battered or grilled, and served with chips or salad. Ol’ School’s skin-on chips have been tried, tested and cooked using a three-step process to ensure that perfect crispy-on-the-outside soft-on-the-inside texture, and are served communally (for optimum sharing) by the scoop atop greaseproof paper in the middle of your table. Nostalgic sides also feature on the menu, as well as salads and a selection of homemade dipping sauces, plus bitey accoutrements such as malt vinegar, cornichons, pickled onions and a whole lot of citrus to round out the classic feel.
